Episode 150. How to Manage Wealth Guilt | Bernadette Joy, Founder & CEO of CRUSH Your Money Goals®

Bernadette Joy is a nationally recognized money expert featured on Good Morning America, NBC News, Time and USA Today for her unique ability to inspire her audience to explore the intersection between net worth and self-worth. She blends a decade of experience in both business and psychology to teach more than just math, but overcoming the mental and emotional stress that comes with finances.

While she has two degrees in business and a degree in psychology, her credibility comes from truly leading by example. As first generation Filipino Americans, she and her husband AJ paid off a whopping $300,000 of debt in three years AND grew their first $1 million of net worth in their thirties. Not one dime was inherited, while transitioning from a decade as a corporate HR professional to a six-figure business owner.

She founded the Crush Your Money Goals® Academy for those overlooked and underestimated by traditional financial services. She will teach you everything you wish you knew about money, and the confidence to manage yours well.

Once you hear her speak, you’ll grow confidence to make financial independence a reality, and a clear blueprint to help you get there.

You can follow Bernadette on Instagram, and LinkedIn.

Episode 150 Highlights:

  • What actually goes into becoming a millionaire
  • How to work through feelings of wealth guilt, especially as a first-gen
  • Normalizing uncomfortable conversations around money, especially with loved ones
  • The importance around vulnerability and remembering your why
  • Giving yourself grace to shift your money goals as you evolve as a person
  • You deserve to wealthy AF!
  • And much more!

The conversation we had with Bernadette was so refreshing and exactly what we needed to hear. The way she shows up online (and in person!) gives us the motivation we need to think that YES! We f*cking DESERVE to have money. We DESERVE to be wealthy AF. And we DON’T need to feel bad about it! We need more voices like Bernadette’s to give us the permission we need to hear in order to level up unapologetically, especially as women of color. Thank you for continuing to be a bad ass in the personal finance space. We ADORE you!
